Charles MIngus - Ah Um, DSD vs 1998 redbook mix


Recommended Posts

To all the Jazz fans here who have downloaded Mingus Ah Um from Acoustic Sounds.

I'm about to cave in and finally download this album. I was wondering if anyone had compared it to the 1998 redbook CD. I'm interested in knowing if it has the same mix, and level of compression.

Don't know the answer. But I do know what the DSD edition sounds like: Gorgeous, musical, brilliant. Highly recommended.

Enjoy the music,

I have both. Prefer the DSD. Just a little cleaner and clearer. Can't tell you about the compression of the DSD, as we don't have a tool to measure that. But it sounds like there's no added compression.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: Ropieee (RPi3b+ with touchscreen) + Schiit Modi3E to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)
